Apple unveils iPhone X with Face ID

That’s the status bar area. Most devs know to avoid it.

Apple unveils iPhone X with Face ID

Does it mean that if I am watching a movie (or any other video type) on the iPhone X, I will not have a well designed rectangle but will lose part of the screen (left or right) to the dark area hiding the face id controls? if true what a bummer!

New details emerge on 'iPhone 8' design, removal of Home Button

As an “old” Mac and iPhone user, I’m not about to invest in the iPhone 8 with all these new features…iPhone 8S or iPhone 9 will be safe enough to count on these advanced features.

Apple publishes details of deep learning improvements to Siri voice quality in iOS 11

A little GLaDOS-sounding voice and diction wouldn’t hurt.

Apple and Hollywood still discussing plans for early movie rentals

Actually, they’re talking about $30 – $50 per rental, based on the idea that the movies would still be in the theatres.

Apple and Hollywood still discussing plans for early movie rentals

Ouch…is that $30-$50/month? $30 is the top end, IMHO. $50 is way too much to justify the cord cutting, especially for mostly movie-only programming, regardless of how soon the movies are being released.

Cellular Apple Watch said to be launching alongside iPhone 8 in September

I am guessing this watch will eventually power Apples vision of the AR glasses they are working on.

Apple suppliers ramping up to mass production of all 3 new iPhones

Rumor has it there was an accident at the Assembly plant which mixed the two colors, Gold and Rose Gold paints together…resulting in the new Copper-Color for the iPhones.  Hey… it’s a slow news-day. ;)

Plex expands Live TV support, time shifting to Apple TV

One current limited alternative on the tvOS platform, but without DVR recording, is the Channels app. We’ve used it with our OTA antenna and HDHomeRun tuner for over a year to great satisfaction. It gives full pause, forward, rewind to every live channel of over an hour of HD programming. The biggest drawback is that you can’t record or store the show…once you switch channels or apps, then the stored data is gone. Still, it’s quite a benefit to pause shows for phone calls, dinner, breaks, or rewind a scene.

Rumor: iPhone 8 not delayed, enters trial production

Nothing generates more interest in a new model or product… than to say, ‘It won’t be released on time.’

Apple pulls VPN apps from China's App Store over new government rules

yeah. their app is still over stores other than that of china, and that doesn’t mean vpns have issues or apps have them. it’s just what the authorities over there want. right now if you’re in chinese mainland, it sucks to have a USD 650+ phone, that you can’t even use to surf any major website or social network. language networks are another issue, unless you already have the app or better yet, you know how to, or can manually configure a vpn like express or ivacy over your phone. otherwise, a low-end android user still seems to be at an advantage after this development.

not just express because china’s going a step further in invading privacy or enforcing their rules, depending on where you’re coming from.

Apple discontinues iPod nano and iPod shuffle, updates iPod touch prices and capacities

A salute to the product line that, in my opinion, really signaled the launch of Apple’s return as the leading technology company in the world.

..... and hard luck if you need to go back to Sierra 10.12 because the12.7 iTunes library is not compatible with Sierra 10.12. Wonderful.

Apple releases iOS 10.3.3, tvOS 10.2.2, watchOS 3.2.3

According to CNET:
Apple released a security patch on Wednesday that you should really consider updating to if you enjoy using Wi-Fi on your iOS devices.
So, you know, just about everybody should update.
The iOS 10.3.3 update addresses vulnerabilities with your Contacts, Messages, Notifications, Safari and other issues. One of the more potentially damaging exploits was hidden in the iPhone’s Wi-Fi chipset, where an attacker could take over a device remotely if it was searching for a signal.
Hackers are constantly looking for vulnerabilities in systems, and outdated devices make for an easy target. Just look at how many old computers the WannaCry ransomware attack was able to take advantage of. Companies like Microsoft, Google and Apple can release updates to fix their flaws, but it doesn’t matter if people aren’t downloading them.
For this Wi-Fi-based attack, you’ll want to upgrade. If your iOS device has its Wi-Fi turned on, attackers in range could find your device, remotely take over its Wi-Fi chip and crash your phone.
This is the Broadpwn exploit, which Google patched for Android devices on July 5, listing it as a critical security flaw. It affected a broad range of devices from companies like HTC, LG and Samsung. The attack doesn’t need your device’s PIN or password to exploit the weakness.
On the US’s National Institute of Standards and Technology severity scale, Broadpwn scored a 9.8 out of 10.
Apple said the vulnerability it patched affected the iPhone 5 to iPhone 7, the fourth-generation iPad and later versions, and the iPod Touch 6th generation.
Nitay Artenstein, a security researcher at Exodus Intelligence, discovered the exploit and will be providing more details about his findings at a Black Hat presentation in Las Vegas on July 27.

Apple urging developers to prepare for iOS 11 App Store changes after public beta release

Headline fixed, so it should make sense now! Thanks for catching that and sorry about the headache.

Apple urging developers to prepare for iOS 11 App Store changes after public beta release

Perhaps I am dense, but my brain cannot parse this article title to save my life.
What happened after urging?
Did the App Store change after the beta release?
So many different ways to read it. Headache.

Apple releases first iOS 11, tvOS 11 public betas, updates to developer betas

Yes, but that folder name still moves to the top center as you scroll.  Which is where the folder name is in iOS 10.  The only thing I can think of is that it makes the Search bar more visible.  I seem to remember when I first opened mail after the install the Search bar was always visible when you opened a folder, which was even worse.  It seems to have gone away after a little use though.
